Shedd Aquarium

Latest (audio) novel from the library is another in The Dresden Files series, and in this one, Small Favor, Harry spends some time at Chicago's Shedd Aquarium ...

The John G. Shedd Aquarium is an indoor public aquarium in Chicago .... The aquarium contains over 25,000 fish, and was for some time the largest indoor aquarium in the world .... It is surrounded by Museum Campus Chicago, which it shares with the Adler Planetarium and the Field Museum of Natural History.

One of the aquarium creatures mentioned in the Dresden novel is the sea otter. Wikipedia says of sea otters ... To keep from drifting apart, sea otters may sleep holding paws. ...

Here's a (silent) video from the Shedd Aquarium of a baby sea otter being fed :) ...

Aww, they are so cute!

I remember trips to the Shedd when I was a kid.

Hi Dina,

I'm really learning a lot about Chicago from reading these novels :)
